chairman ben bernanke take in the unemployment rate? is now it's 7.75%. do the forecasts come down, or does the fed not believe in the decline of the unemployment rate because of things like the decline in the participation rate? those are the things we'll be watching today. we'll be listening to how the chairman explains or rationalizes what everybody in the market believes the fed is about to do. >> steve, akaspdr-man. let's bring in the two guests. we have the deputy chief investment officer. bill, with all good respect to my good friend steve liesman, who forgot more about the fed than i'll ever know, he said the balance sheet is, quote, about to explode. we've got a few trillion dollars already on the fed books. isn't that already the neutron bomb of indebtedness? >> well, potentially, brian. it's sitting there basically in reserves that the banks are unwilling to lend, so ultimately it provides the fire power, but not just yet. i think steve has it exactly right, though. the expansion to $1 trillion annually a year in terms of check writing is significantly potent in terms of potentia

to realize that ben bernanke really has no idea what he's doing and must admit that his policy that's been in place now for four years of free money and 0% interest rates has really produced a very poor employment picture. let me prove my point. the november non-farm payroll report, we actually lost 22,000 jobs in the goods-producing sector. how could that be after four years of 0% interest rates? labor force participation rate, falling. the employment-to-population ratio falling and the key demographic of 25-55-year-olds, that demographic, they are leaving the workforce. >> michael, i get the feeling you're not a huge fan of ben bernanke. what would you do if you're the chairman then? >> if i was the fed chairman i would resign and realize that 12 people have absolutely no idea what the cost of money should be. the most important mechanism, symbol in a free market economy is the cost of money, and they have no idea telling us what that price should be. >> price mccain, help us out here. what's your expectation in the fed has said they are going to keep rates this low at least until unempl

. maria is off today as we welcome you to "closing bell" as ben bernanke wraps up his final news conference of 2012 after the fed's two-day meetings in which they agreed to continue to buy treasury securities and mortgage-backed securities, but the new wrinkle now in monetary policy that we all heard about today was a new kind of target. he called it a guidepost. to this point they said they would keep the fed funds rate at around 0% until 2015. now they say they will keep it there at least until the fed funds rate drops to 6.5%. it's currently at 7.7%, and while he was talking, mandy, the market lost ground. >> absolutely. let's take a look right in front of you. what you've got is the dow sitting right there on the line. it did actually drop negative just in the last five, ten minutes. we were at the highs of the day around 81 points to the positive on the dow. and then we really watched as ben bernanke was speaking the market lose its steam. the nasdaq also went negative where it is right now, and, you know, bill, i guess we'll ask our guests what it is that the market was dis
